Truly Unique Salvation Mountain in California

Share/Bookmark

Salvation Mountain is a literal man-made mountain 28 years in the making, covered in half a million gallons of latex paint. What started as a small monument made of dirt and painted cement became, over time, a sprawling adobe and hay-bale mountain complex, with peripheral structures made of telephone poles, tires, and car windows, as well as art cars and sculptures. The mountain was created by Leonard Knight after his hot air balloon failed in this bleak patch of desert near the Salton Sea. God, Knight knew, wanted him to continue spreading his message of love in this hostile environment. I strongly encourage anyone who dares to make the pilgrimage to the Salton Sea to stop by and soak in the glorious vibes of Salvation Mountain.
